For sale through AB 4x4s Cleveland and on behalf of a customer is a 1978 Land Rover Series 3, 2. 25 petrol hardtop that has benefitted from a nut and bolt rebuild by its previous owner. Last year this came to us with a few jobs to complete the project so has covered very little miles since.
We are delighted to be selling it for the second time knowing how superb it was when we had completed the work. Unfortunately, the present owner, a very sweet chap, now needs to sell due to health problems. He has however totally cherished it and made over £2000 of upgrades.

These are to include;

-New side steps
-New fuel Tank
-Reconditioned steering box
-New battery

In the last 2 years or so listed below is the huge work undertaken-

CHASSIS- Shot blasted, repaired with new outriggers and crossmember then painted with 5 litres of chassis paint then stone chip. This should keep it nice for many years to come.
AXLES- Fully rebuilt then painted.
SUSPENSION- New parabolic springs, shock absorbers and u bolts.
ENGINE- This underwent a full rebuild which included-
New pistons and seals
New big ends
New mains
New gaskets

New sills

All in all here is a chance to purchase a well built Series 3 that is ready to use. It has had a mere 5 former keepers in its 43 years which is rare. It comes with a massive wad of receipts for the thousands of pounds spent, let alone the man hours to rebuild it. It has had stainless fixings where possible so no rusting issues. It is now a very presentable example that gets admired wherever it goes. It is Mot and tax exempt making this a super cheap yet appreciating classic. We are pricing this one for a quick sale at £14995. Please call Anthony on the details below for any further information. Delivery can be arranged at £1. 10 a mile one way.
